Stone Oven

San Diego, California | 2009

The focus of this chain restaurant is the freshly baked bread that’s made to order. Correspondingly, the bread oven is the sculptural centerpiece of the restaurant. Weighing 5600 lbs., this massive equipment clad with heavy gauge sheet metal is the restaurant’s architectural anchor. The oven is also a branding element and its presentation is modified depending on the limits and opportunities of each location.
